    Installing .Jar or .Jad Apps on BB 8900



    Hey Guys! Loving my new Blackberry 8900! got a few questions, I found some really neat games and applications, however the file seems to be the odd .jar and .Jad files! I know how to upload the usual .axl files, but not these ones. Any ideas of a how to guide??

    as well, where can I find Java Mobile for this bb?? Not a lot of sites show hte 8900 yet...

    Thanks a lot! Lovin this site!

    welcome to pinstack
    if you direct your BB's browser at the .jar or .jad file it will auto download and install and you 'll be all good!
    let us know how it goes!

    haha well I'm just happy that two people were that eager to help!

    awesome!

    I would imagine that either one will work for you but try one if that does not work try the other.

    Dont use desktop manager. With yyour BB pluged in. Click my computor/blackberry/mediacard then drag the jad file over onto media card. Unplug the BB the click media/explore to find the file then click on it and it will download if compatible.

    You will have to go to the website you downloaded the file from (do this on your phone) and try the file there.

    It is most likely calling for other files which are not on your media card.
    They will be on the server where you got your jad/jar file from.
